So grateful and excited to be talking to the folks at Melaleuca tomorrow. I can't wait to see what doors of opportunity open up there and if there is synergy to be able to help them with their UI/UX strategy. Please pray. Trusting God - confident and at peace either way.

What are the very first words we hear God speak in the Bible? 

Genesis 1:3 says, "And God said, Let there be light: and there was light."
 וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים, יְהִי אוֹר; וַיְהִי-אוֹר.

God is light. He loves the light. He lights everything around Him. When He comes into our lives He fills them with light.

Because God has filled us with His light, this should also be our passion. Loving the light. Hating the darkness.

Is there a dark place in your life? Ask God to fill it with His light. Are their places of darkness in your home? Has darkness and evil subtly intruded through the media, computers, or literature? Ask God to expose all darkness and flood your home with His light. Don't let one corner go unnoticed. When you allow evil to hide in a little corner, it will soon encroach upon the rest of the home.

Be a darkness exposer and a light flooder!

Lois and I are grateful for you inviting us to this group. Let's give YHVH all the honor and glory.  Shalom, Rob and Lois

What is the Restoration Project Community?

The Restoration Project Community is a place for those who seek to honor and glorify God to meet, share, study, pray and put their faith into to action by being an example of His love in action to others. This is not a place to debate the ideologies, theologies, doctrines, rituals or dogma of men. The men that proposed these conclusions were flawed human beings who have not arrived.

These men were merely interpreting their relationship the best they could with the knowledge they had of the scriptures they read and instead of excelling past that into new areas of relationship, they replicated it, made it a tradition and this it became another separatist crack that helped cause further division which in the end lead to more segregation, alienation, castigation, despair and hopelessness.  

Our goal is to be an example to be an agent of restoration that will help bridge the gap of misunderstanding by removing the traditions of man and replacing it with the simplistic relationship with the Creator. The Faith and relationship that Abraham and the Patriarchs experienced is what we are striving for.

Many will find this to be a strange place, unfamiliar and uncomfortable at first, because so much time and sweat equity has been invested in upholding the traditions of men as if it is the truth of God. Please realize also this is a journey to a destination, THIS IS NOT THE DESTINATION. None of us here have arrived, none of us have it all figured out and it will not fit neatly in a statement of faith, 12 point doctrine or daily/weekly/monthly/annual ritual. 

The Psalmist said sing to the Lord a new song. That is our purpose. To sing to Him a new song in our daily relationship with him in all that we say and do. Our purpose is not codify the faith by forsaking relationship and minimalizing love by exhibiting it in a repetitious manner; hoping to manipulate the situation by clinging to a moment that was supposed to be expanded on, not memorialized.  This community is all about exploring uncharted waters, with nothing but the Scriptures as our Map and the Father as our Guide. 

There will be many times that in this journey what we will try to hold on to the traditions of men and share that as a compass to others. If that happens, in gentle understanding love, we must hold each other accountable to remind each other when each of us does it so that we do not get sidetracked by something that ultimately only glorifies ourselves and what we ascribe to know rather than glorifying the Father in earnest Humility. 

Ultimately we strive to have a weekly meeting to initiate a group study where we can all participate and help encourage one another. Additionally you will see different discussions areas, most by the title are fairly self-explanatory; however there are some that I do want to give particular attention to as I believe they will be what helps make this community one that puts the faith in action rather than just giving it lip-service. 

Focus on Specific Discussion Areas

There is one area called "My Needs" and that is exactly what it is a place for you to put your needs. It might be food for your family, a ride to work, and some clothes for the children… whatever…. Whatever you need is, put it there. There may be those impressed by the Lord to help be an answer to that need and are able to give because of the abundant blessing that has come from the fruit that he produced in them and allowed them to bare. 

Another area is the “Come and Get It”. If you have something you do not need and you feel someone else may need it…. Post it. You never know what you have that God Is prompting you to get rid of may be the blessing someone else is needing. God has a unique way of gathering people together so that they can be a blessing to each other in simply sharing what they have already been blessed with. 

The “Above and Beyond” area is a place for you to share the great and wonderful things God is doing or has done that has been so incredible that others, particularly those who do not believe would see the Light of Creation and Blessing and it could only be attributed to one place… The Fathers undying love for you in action overcoming the obstacles where others have failed. It is the area of inspiration and encouragement… it is His story of you and how that story overcame all odds. We often say that we may be the only bible others see, here is a place to record God’s story of you. 

"Torah in Action" is a place to share how the fruit of Torah… i.e. the fruit of the Spirit looks in your daily life. God is the same yesterday, today and forever, He is unchanging and so is His word. This conflicts with the theological traditions that many ascribe to because tradition have been held above His word. Here in this place we realize the problem is not God, or that God is contradicting Himself, we realize that it is the pollution of our understanding that creates perceived inconsistencies and it is our duty in this journey to “not rely on our own understanding” but to transcend what man has defined and enter in into a new place where His revealed truth sets us free. 

The last one I want to focus on is "Quantum Abstractions" … this is the abstracts corner to share ideas, concepts, dreams, revelations, etc. This is for the mature of heart as many of the ideas shared here may still be raw. It is a place to really go outside the box we both live in and have created for ourselves when it comes to God and explore new ideas, concepts of scripture. This is an area to express what you believe God is showing and is never to be taken as absolute fact, truth, doctrine, etc. If your knee jerk reaction is to hold people to tradition when confronted with a non-traditional concepts or to presume such raw concepts in their inception are blasphemous, you may not want to join.

Again this is an area to work out raw ideas, concepts, dreams, etc. The only rule here is to use the scriptures as the ultimate and final litmus test to weigh everything by and to make final judgments by. This area is entirely experimental and we will leave it open as long as it is give glory to God, and not the individual – if this becomes too much of a distraction to the purpose of this community, we will shut it down. It is great to theorize, conceptualize and share raw concepts so that iron sharpens iron, but then that becomes a distraction that takes away from putting your faith in action or deepening relationships with both God and others, then it would have become a stumbling block that needs to be removed. 

Other than that the Discussion is a general topic discussion area and mainly intended to facilitate deeper exchanges surrounding the weekly bible study. 

This community is about restoration, restoring your relationship with both God and others. It is to be a tool to get you to the next level so that you will be in a place to be able to fully receive what He has already stored up for you. We hope that the restoration project community will be that place that takes you to the next level and we thank you for visiting this community. 

I would like to leave you with a blessing and may the fullness of this blessing enrich every area of your life and may the fruit that comes from fully receiving this blessing bless a multitude of many and give honor and Glory to God.  

Numbers 6:
24 “The Lord bless you and keep you;
25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
26 The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”’

I definitely recommend his CD for prayer, meditation and deep God-lead, spiritual introspection - it colors outside the lines and is a great spring board to deepen understanding.
